Chicago rapper Chief Keef has come forward to address his headline-making arrest last week on drug possession in Atlanta and singled out a hotel security employee responsible for calling police.
According to Keef, the so-called “snitch” gave him and his crew a problem from the start.
Here’s Chief’s account of the situation: “So me and my homie Tray Savage was in the hotel room chillin’ when some fat ass security guard started knocking on the door talking about he needed to fix a water leak. So his ass walked in and started looking around at us and immediately gave me the racist look then started talking sh*t to me. I told him, ‘I thought you wanted to fix a water leak?’ Which he obviously lied ’cause there was no water leaking. Then he immediately started talking sh*t to us. He told me that he was going to call the police on me so I called him a b*tch. He kept saying how the police about to be on their way to lock me up so I blew smoke in his face and pulled out 30 racks (white person translation: $30,000) and said I got the bond money — there is more where this come from.” (TMZ)
Buzz behind the unexpected run-in with law enforcement landed online last Tuesday (May 21).

Some reports claim the arrest could result in serious repercussions for the teen rapper.
The new arrest for Chief Keef could be a real live challenge for the young BUCK. Why? I am hearing that the new arrest on weed is a violation to probation or parole or whatever he’s on. Word on the street is he may have to do more time. I also heard that these antics are rapidly wearing thin at the label level. If he continues to get knocked, he’ll definitely do a longer stretch in the bing. Wait til the money runs out… (All Hip Hop Rumors)
